Planned spontaneity can be a great way to mix things up and do something different. This date also takes decision-making off the table. You do what you draw!

Once you “create” this date, you can use it over and over again!

What you need:

  • 1 piece of paper
  • pen
  • two bags

Create the date:

Cut a piece of paper into 20 strips.
Write the names of ten restaurants on ten of the slips–one restaurant per slip.
Then on the other ten strips, write an activity you can do together.

Activity ideas might include:

  • Bowling
  • Hiking
  • Ax Throwing (yes there are places in many communities that offer this!)
  • Playing a board game
  • Putt Putt golfing
  • Zoo
  • Movie
  • Museum (specify specific museums nearby)

Make it happen:

Put the restaurant strips in one bag and the activity strips in another bag. Shake the bags and draw one restaurant and one activity. You now have the plan, so head out and make it happen!
